Museum, Archaeological Park and Research Centre - Celtic World at Glauberg (Part 1)

"History is a pack of lies about events that never happened, told by people who weren't there." When a museum welcomes its guests with a quote like this one from George Santayana (1863-1952), it shows boldness and self-confidence. And if the Celtic World at the Glauberg has one thing for sure, it’s self-confidence. After a visit to this futuristic-looking jewel that sits on the middle of a hillside, it’s easy to get carried away with superlatives, and not just because of the building’s unique architecture and the design, which is impressive both inside and out, but above all, its concept, which is groundbreaking in the museum landscape.

In addition to the museum with its astonishing Celtic finds, the Glauberg project has a research department that ensures that the museum can continue to present new discoveries and information. Visitors even have the opportunity to watch archaeologists during their ongoing excavations in the 350,000-square-metre archaeological park, and have visible as well as concealed archaeological remains along the cultural-historical circular footpath explained to them. Museum Director Dr Vera Rupp lays particular stress on the specific location: "The position of the museum directly at the archaeological site plus the showcasing of original artefacts is fantastic as well as being vitally important for the development of tourism in the region."
